I know that some of you enjoy featuring current events in your classroom - I thought of you when I discovered The Learning Network blog. This blog is an educational outreach of the New York Times. It provides bite-sized bits of information about the news (usually with a link to the original NYT article), stunning photography, thoughtful questions, and news quizzes. I must confess that I scrolled past the Weekly News Quiz post and the How Green are You? post and clicked on Test Yourself/The Royal Baby's Name. Sigh. My shallowness appalls me.
Thanks to Sarah Muthler for alerting me to the site in her post Classroom inspiration: 15 great websites for Elementary Educators!
